RPS balcony hinges manufactured by R-Group Finland Oy are steel parts used in pre-cast concrete buildings to transfer horizontal loads from balcony slab to the building floor and at the same time allowing vertical movement of balcony due to temperature changes.

RPS balcony hinge consists of R30 or R36 lifting anchor installed to the balcony slab before casting and balcony hinge steel part installed to the floor grouting. These parts are connected with an attachment screw. The connecting sections include a connecting screw fastenable to the connecting anchor and between them an elevating sleeve by means of which the distance of the connecting screw from the connecting anchor is adjusted.

An adjusting ring is installed in the connecting plate and the adjusting ring is arranged to adjust the correct position of the steel section in the installation stage. The connecting anchors of the RPS also operate as the lifting inserts of the balcony slab during the installation of the balcony slab. One end of the steel section is installed at the work site in a connection formed by the connecting anchor, the elevating sleeve and the connecting screw and the other end is fastened to the slabs of the building in connection with the installation of the balcony slabs.
